Subject: listened to in headphones
Love the video. Sounds like its in mono on headphones though. Ironic?

Nice short about the development of stereo recordings. As far as the bad color goes, I won't put up with that. I converted the file to B & W and burned it to disk. This procedure won't fight bad breath but it will kill 99.9% of the germs that cause bad color!
...to finally understand how stereo records (used to) work.
The film was shot in full color - this is what happens to Eastmancolor stock after a few years. Kodacolor, on the other hand, doesn't fade at all. Unfortunately, it was made for home use and was rarely used professionally.
Subject: Colour or black & white?
Is this tinted black & white or really faded colour? There are some parts where it looks like it was originally colour, especially the animation with the dog at the end. I've tried turning up the saturation. That seems to mainly make the lighter areas green and the darker ones red-brown, especially in the live-action sections.
Is it possible that the animations are in colour and the live-action sections are black & white?
Subject: How Did They Do This?
I think that this short film was tied-in with a record album I have is "Sounds In Space", a stereo demostration record where a narrator discussing how stereo works. The second half of this film on another section is called "A Revolutionary New Triumph in Tape". I've seen it many times. I love stereo sound.
Subject: Listen to the sound of my voice..
Pretty entertaining introduction to "living stereo" which RCA Victor introduced in the early 1960's. I really did like the explanations done to explain how this newfangled technology was done. The narrator was very hep too, what with his mod suit and funky glasses. Pretty entertaining.
Subject: Living Stereo
Excellent presentation of the era of RCA Victor's Living Stereo. This is the golden era of the vinyl LP, when recorded sound on record got away from the single speaker to be able to come out ot two speakers individually. Manufacturers were exited to bring out this new sound format to the listening public. We heard conductors leading the great orchestras in concert halls that many of us could not be present in to hear these performances in person. The Living Stereo album gave us that experience that the concert going public was witnessing live. Bands with instruments sounding in each corner of the audio spectrum and we could follow that sound with our ears instead of our eyes. Vocalists and soloists sounded like they were right there, instead of sounding like just being in a recording with the sound coming from the one speaker. Yes, RCA Victor led the way with stereo for all with their engineers and technicians paying careful attention to the quality of the recorded sound. These recording today are considered audiophile quality recordings-a witness to quality from the past.
